Five time champions!

Mapi and Majo reign in Portugal

Five time champions!

It was another great final between the world number one and two pairings. The Sanchez Alayeto sisters against Gemma Triay and Lucia Sainz. In the first set, Gemma's magic and Lucia's work rate left Jorge Martinez's players with no response. Mapi was suffering in defence and Majo was struggling to execute. All of this resulted in a 6-0 scoreline in favour of Triay and Sainz.

In the second set, Mapi and Majo came looked like another couple of players. They broke early on and proved to Gemma and Lucia that the first set was merely a hiccup. That break was enough for the twins to see out the set 6-4 and force a decider.

Almost two hours were on the clock and there was no champion in Portugal. The third set was the most even of the lot. The four players brought out their best and breaking serve was turning into mission impossible. In the eleventh game, Lucia and Gemma were serving to force a tiebreak but that's when the sisters broke. A broke that gave Mapi and Majo their fifth title of the season.
